Cycling advocates at the Dublin Cycling Campaign have produced a video to highlight the lack of space for cycling on the quays in Dublin and promote the family-frendly cycle this Sunday in support of the Liffey Cycle Route.
Here’s the video:
The cycle along the quays, also organised by the Dublin Cycling Campaign, is to show support for the planned 4.6km contentious cycle path between the Phoenix Park and the Point Village.
Supporters of the route are asked to meet at 11am on Sunday April 2 on Chesterfield Avenue across from the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park. The group will then cycle along the north quays to the Point Village.
Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
